Inches upon inches of the SNOW have been pictured in the UK these past few May mornings, incredibly unusual winter weather for the time of year. In fact, May this year looks set to rival the snowiest May on record: that of 1979–which fell just after the weak Solar Cycle and subsequent Minimum of cycle 20.
A blanket of snow has fallen across the Scottish Highlands as this doggedly persistent meridional jet stream flow continues to pull the Arctic down to the mid-latitudes. And while Scotland may have copped the worst of it, substantial accumulations have also hit N. Ireland, Wales and even England.
Over the Cairngorms, inches upon inches of “good quality” powder have been registered, which is making for great skiing conditions across the range:
This polar outbreak has astounded locals, who are used to the odd blast of out-of-season cold at this time of year, reports the dailyrecord.co.uk.
Highlander Gary Hodgson tweeted ‘”it is still winter” as he shared a picture of the white stuff in Aviemore Tuesday morning:
Snow also hit England, with North Yorkshire logging sizable flurries:
And even south of Yorkshire, regions including Manchester, Derbyshire and the Pennines, and parts of Wales, have all received scatterings of mid-spring snow.
It came as “unusually” cold air for May moved south across the country, dragging the temperatures down to 2C (35.6F), according to the Met Office–who I think I’ll stop quoting, as these charlatans have literally no clue what they’re talking about. In reality, FREEZING temperatures were logged, even in SW England. I have no idea where they pulled that “2C” number, but perhaps it came from the same place their ‘extreme low temperatures and late-season snow are now things of the past’ comment did. Oh, and the UK Met Office regularly answers questions on Twitter –to their credit– so help me get them to answer this one:
April, 2021 –as we’ve reported— was historically cold ACROSS Europe, and was the UK’s coldest since 1922:
Now, we see this chill persisting into May, with record snowfall to boot: these real-world observations are making it harder and harder to maintain the catastrophic global heating lie:
Turning to the weather charts, it would appear there is no reprieve on the horizon, as things look set to remain bitterly cold across the UK until at least mid-May.
The ‘feels like’ temperatures are forecast to reach highs of just 2C for those in the north.
Looking at the latest GFS temperature anomaly model (shown below), the impacts of low solar activity will unfortunately continue to ravage European harvests, which are already noted to be struggling.
And as hinted at above, rare and heavy mid-spring snowfall will continue to accompany the historic chill, particularly over the next few days. Note also those extremely unusual flakes forecast for central England, just north of London, expected in the early hours of May 6:

The UK’s previous notable May snow was in 2012, but those flurries were slight compared to the falls we’re seeing this year.
In fact, snowfall in May, 2021 more closely resembles the snowiest May on record, which occurred back in 1979 (around the solar min of weak cycle 20) when some 300+ British weather stations logged snowfall on May 2.
This year’s snow is forecast to persist to May 9, at least.
Stay tuned for updates.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
